BREWER – Lynwood E. “Bud” Dolan passed away Sunday, Jan. 10, 2010, at a Bangor health care facility after a recent illness and hospitalization. He was born Dec. 29, 1919, in Old Town, the son of Walter and Evelyn (Jellison) Dolan. Bud graduated from Old Town High School, Class of 1938, and graduated from Gilman Commercial School in 1940. He served 45 months in the U.S. Army, serving in Europe during the majority of the time. Bud worked most of his career in the family business, Walter H. Dolan Moving and Storage. He was a member of Maine Movers Association. He married Margaret Keirstead in 1946 and she predeceased him, March 8, 2000. During their 54-year marriage they enjoyed traveling throughout New England and spending time at their cottage at Bayside Campground, Northport. Bud was an active participant at many events in the Bangor area including the Folk Festival and supporting University of Maine sports. After the death of his wife, he resided at Ellen Leach Home, the Woodlands, Brewer, and spending the last several years at the Phillips Strickland House, Bangor. All of these facilities found Bud readily adapting to the new group of friends and he was ever thankful for the love and care he received there. His love of sports offered him many enjoyable days of attending, watching and discussing “his teams”: the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins. He is survived by nephews, Brent, Tim and Brian Folster, David and Fred Murch, and Deane Cunningham; nieces, Priscilla (Folster) Smith, Margaret Murch and Deanna Wade; many great-nieces and great-nephews. He was predeceased by his wife, Margaret; and two sisters, Katherine Dolan and Marion (Dolan) Folster. Friends may call 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 13, at Birmingham Funeral Home, 438 Main St., Old Town, where a funeral service will be conducted 10 a.m. Thursday.
